A good writer reads – simple. Sadly I purchase far more books than I currently have time to read. So, I’d like to introduce you to my little green bookcase - it holds my “To-Read” books.
A tiny bookcase, that I remember buying as a single gal and struggling to put together in my first home, which now stands at the top of the staircase and is groaning under the weight.
Anyway, I was thumbing through the books the other day
hunting for my next read… and I have to confess some of the novels have sat patiently for near on eight years… honest, how naughty is that?
I have previously slapped a self imposed book ban on myself, as a means of decreasing my “To-Read” pile but I think drastic measures are in order before hubby threatens to step in. So, I have selected six books that I promise to read by the end of the year:
Madame Bovary – Gustave Flaubert (current read)
My Sister’s Keeper – Jodi Picoult
Enduring Love – Ian McEwan
A Night To Remember – Walter Lord
Captain Scott – Ranulph Fiennes
One Day – David Nicholls
What books do you have lying around in your “To Read” pile?
Do you tend to get carried away and buy more books than you have time to read?
